  1. Currently working on an Ported Enclosure for 2 E8's in my Jeep Wrangler JKU. I may move in the future to SA-8s but as of now the wife will hold me to the budget. So the following is what I am working with currently. I need help on making sure this will work for Cubic feet and need help on this port length. Please help. Port have separator setting 2 chambers apart. 1.5 in width run to end of enclosure leaving 1.5 from back and leaving me with remainder on Port Extension Length I need help with this extension length to fit into the parameters of the E-8's 40W x12D x 10 H 2-8s Wall Th
  2. SO after the wait I finally got my SA-6.5CSv.2 Component set today! I was so excited over it I took some pics opening them up! I will say this Sundown didn't cut ANY expense on these. They look amazing with VERY nice features! I'll just let the pics speak for me!
  3. I'm redoing my subs in my Wagon from two X10's in a ported box to Eight X6.5sw's I want to run them in a 4th order has any one played with them in a 4th yet? I've heard them in ported & sealed box but yet to hear them in a 4th. If anyone has videos that would help! Theirs not very many videos on You-Tube on them that I have found! These pictures are with just 7 of them I have to get a eighth one. But they will replace the 10's hiding under the car. Thanks for any help on this topic!
  4. I have never build a 4th order box and want to give it a shot. So any advice would be great. I have 2 Sundown zv4 15s D2 custom build for 2k rms each, wired to .5 ohm. I am wanting to do a C pillar build in my 97 4 door Blazer. This is currently on a BC3500 and later looking to get another one to push at 1 ohm a piece. My question is on the sealed side what would be the best sealed cubes. I was thinking of doing 4 cubes for both subs and 8 cubes ported and tuned to 40hz. Does this sound about right for 15s on both the sealed and ported? and is tuning it to 40hz good or should a do 45hz. I lo

  6. So, recently I was given a nice little gift and was told to spend it on whatever makes me happy. Well, bass makes me happy. I've always wanted a Sundown system that literally would just destroy my friend's ears... What I'm expecting to get from this build is a rediculous frequency range that can absolutely murder lows, and of course have decent sound in mids too! I am 19 years old and my most recent setup was 2, 12 inch P3's on 1150~ RMS in some gigantic overly high tuned box and it was, meh. With this build, I would really like for it to be my last build too. Even though I said that ab
  7. I Bought a Sundown X-10 v.2 Dual 2ohm subwoofer only 3 months or so and it was working great until one day I was driving and the bass from the sub cuts out then back on then off. As if the speaker wires had come loose and the connection wasn't firm enough... I tried everything and I discovered that since it is a Dual 2 ohm sub that each terminal should give me a ohms/resistance reading of 1 ohm. But when using my multimeter. I only get a reading of 1 ohm off one of the terminals. The other side all I get is 0. I'm not sure if there's anything that can be done. Appearance wise everything looks
  8. Alright so I have the opportunity to trade my 4 kicker comp 15's for a zv4 12 from sundown. I don't know if it would be worth it. I'm running the four 15's with a 1000w Memphis amp at 1ohm since the kickers rms are 250w each. In a Tahoe if that matters.
  9. HI I need some tips on what box dimensions i should use for my car or how many cubic feet my box should be for 2 sundown X-12 with 3k rms and its going in a 1979 Rabbit MK1
  10. I just ordered two sundown audio SA 15 d4 subs. I have a CT sounds 2500.1 that i plan on powering them with. I have a 2001 Oldsmobile alero 4 door, I took out my back seats and plan on puting a box back there since theres no room in the trunk. The amps are going in the trunk along with the battery. I have been doing research trying to find some box designs online but could only find 2 box designs that are slightly to big to fit. So if anybody could help me with a box design i would appreciate it alot. My max dimensions for my back seat are 26 height, 21 depth, 34 width . recommendations are 3-
  11. Hello my name is josh, im new to the forms and car audio. I've been researching for the past week and learned about the potential of sundowns SA line of subs. I came to the conclusion that i wanted the SA-12 because price, size and performance. I like reference bass (punchy). My music choices include D&B, Metal-core, and Dance Hall. i wish to keep the bass as close to what the artist intend the track to sound. IDK if anyone has done this before but i ant the box to be able to play in car and also be pulled out and played at the house. I just need to know how to power them out t
  12. Just ordered my Z v.3 two weeks ago. Hopefully it'll be in this week. I'm putting 2 dual 2 15's in my 92 accord. I got D2s because I planned on running one amp per sub. I have four Planet Audio TQ1601s from my previous build so I plan on running 2 of them. I clamped one at a little over 1k before but a Z.v3 is rated 1.5k. I've seen where people dump 5-6k on them but I don't plan on using that much power. I plan to bump these daily and also do a some SPL (145-150db). How much power does it take to really get these subs going because I know my 1k per sub won't even tickle them. As of right now I
  13. I have recently gotten a sundown audio zv4 15" d2. I'm looking for an amp that will power it along with a secondary battery and then the best way to build a box to go into a Toyota Corolla trunk Whether it's sub port back, sub back port back etc What are some great amp brands that will rms 2000-3500 watts and sustain play It can be bang for buck or bigger price range Also would a aero port be better or regular port space wise and effiecency wise Thank you very much
  14. I recieved my Sundown NeoPro 6.5's today the only problem is my order from woofersetc.com must have been messed up because i only recieved 2 of the four i ordered. i have emailed them and hopefully it will be sorted out soon. i still dont know if i should mount them in the stock position behind the speaker grill or if i should aredesign my door panels leaving them exposed. i think this would look a lot nicer, the only problem is this is my daily driver since i am still in school so i do not want to damage them. if you have an opinion on this please let me know!!
  15. I'm lookin to get 4 of these sundown sav2 8's. I really wanna drill the lows but wondering about cubic ft for all 4..? Any suggestions? Probably tuning Around 33 or 34 hz. Thanks
  16. Hello I'm new on here and I'm looking to get some new subs for the spring. I currently have 2 JL audio 10w3v3's running off an Alpine PDX M12. I'm actually fairly happy with the set up but just looking for something different and a project to work on in the spring. I don't do competitions so numbers aren't really my concern but I still like to listen loud on occasions. So I have my eyes on either 2 Sa8v2's or 4 E8v3's as either set up meets both the 1200 watts power I have and around a $400 budget for the speakers. I'm sure ill be happy with either sub, so I'm not necessarily looking for which
  17. Well ive hooked them up and played them on the amp for less than a month. The amp was tuned using a DD-1 on the SQ track. One of the 15s blew up and has a burnt voice coil. No voltage drop, no clipping, no bass boost. Im very shocked. Very disappointed with the customer service i am receiving on it as well. The voice coil should not have burnt up sharing 600w of clean power. Making me pay for shipping to sundown, paying for the recone, and shipping return. All i asked for was a warranty repair. Apparently they dont warranty subs that manufacture defect.
  18. Whats up everyone, i'm new here and I'm really getting into car audio. Right now I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado that I threw 2 shallow P3 12's in. I really want something louder. I'm not quite ready to do a blow through, so I want my first build to be 4 Sundown SA-8's underneath the rear seat, facing the front. I want two 4" ports, one on each side. I'm extremely new to box building, but I learn very fast. I have a few questions, and I would also really appreciate some pointers & tips. Question #1: Since I want 4 subs with a port on each side of the box, am I going to need to put a center
  19. I have a 2011 silverado extended cab and I'm either looking in doing two SA 8 v.2 or two SA 10's what do yall think? What amp also would be best for them, Thanks
  20. Well, I currently have 4 sa-8's, all are d4. Moneys not exactly all the best right now, so I am trying to find a solution without busting the wallet too hard. (3-350) But right now I have a Hifonics BRZ1200 powering 2 of them at 1 ohm. The issue is going to be adding 2 more. Really didnt think it through very well, confused D2-s and D4s, figured on wiring (4) d4s to 1 ohm ( I know...) So with that amp, would it be possible to pick up another one and just run a new set of rca's and remote to power the other 2 all in one enclosure? I know the amp's cant be linked together, but I should be ab
  21. I hate to do a build log before I am completely done, but it looks like I won't get much else done between now and when I leave for Korea, and when I get back, I will probably upgrade, so the build will start over at that point. Starts off as a stock Jetta with an upgraded head unit. Not the best of head units, but it does what I need for now. It is a Kenwood DDX-418. The GLI model comes with from the factory with a Monsoon audio system. This consists of a factory 8 Channel amp running a tweeter and woofer in each door. It sounded good, and got loud, but there was significant lacking of the l
  22. Hello everyone I'm new on here and I need some help from the pro box builders and choosing the rite subs. Here wat I have so far. Mechman 340 amp alt, five kinetik hc2400s, four runs 0 , two crescendo bc 3500s strapped at 1ohm ( 8 to 9k rms). And a jeep with about 16 cubes net to play with. I want something will be crazy loud and make people feel very uncomfortable sitting in there. My last subs were four 15 Memphis mojos in 16 cubes port up sub up. It pounded hard but it didn't give me wat I wanted. I went to spring break nationals and heard a guy from team sundown named mike who was running
  23. Alright I'm new to smd but I been checking out this site for awhile. But anyways I have 2 sa 8s and I don't know how to tune the box? I have two aero 3" aero ports coming in the mail soon and sundown 1200.
  24. Hello everyone I'm thinking bout selling my two sundown 3500s to get a sundown ns1. With this power , five kinetik hc2400s ,330 mechman alt, four runs of 0 gauge front to back, wat will give me more power, the two 3500s or one ns1. Subs will be four Z v3 15"s, 15.35 cubic ft enclosure , tuned to 33 hz.
